Title: An overview of SELinux in CentOS 5

Title: CentOS 5 and Virtualization

Title: Introduction to CentOS

Title: Pluggable real-time monitoring with dstat

The aim of this talk is to present dstat to the FOSDEM audience. At first explain what it was designed for and why it displays information in this way. The usefulness to correlate counters by selecting only those values on a case-by-case basis. I'd like to highlight the different use cases and show the potential of dstat as it is today in comparison with vmstat, top and other tools. How one can create raw data and graphs and what kind of plugins currently exist. Before diving into the internals, I'd like to pinpoint some of the known limitations and performance aspects of using a scripting language.

Official CentOS shirts (same model that we used last year) for the people attending the fosdem can be ordered :

Color will be 'Navy blue' for everybody. Price is 22.5 euros/shirt (based on last year price, so to be confirmed) and has to be paid at the fosdem to FabianArrotin

UPDATE: there is now a proposal about having Polo's instead of buttoned shirts . These polo's can be ordered with short sleeves (18 euros) or long sleeves (22 euros) . We can vote about using the shirts from last year or polo's .. or both . Please complete the following list with all details (for example shirt, polo or polo LS)
